Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Explore Reykjavik's surroundings by going to Thingvellir National Park (in Thingvellir) and Thermal Spas (in Grindavik). The adventure continues: pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Iceland, and get your game on at Mink Viking Portrait Studio.
